What is learnt during team building is more important than what form it takes, and a company had better attach more importance to coordinating office atmosphere daily. It is unrealistic to make employees go deep into understanding the importance of teamwork or begin to love their company within just dozens of minutes of team building programs. After all, managing a team well is tougher than hurting employees' feelings.

Does the US have shortage of philosophers?

China's approach in Xinjiang best answers Western criticism

China's approach has been in consonance with the real protection of human rights by conforming to the rule of law, guaranteeing better livelihood, and ensuring the right to survive and develop of every terrorist and extremist who can be saved. This is the best response to groundless condemnation by the US-led Western world.

Action needed as North Korea deadline looms

If Pyongyang and Washington can hold high-level negotiations before the former makes major decisions and even figure out the possibility for a new Kim-Trump summit, it will help mitigate North Korea's hard-line stance and prevent the situation on the Korean Peninsula from getting worse.

Domestic political infighting takes a toll on Washington's foreign policy

As US China policy adjustments have been intertwined with the country's domestic political fights, “being tough on China” has become Washington's new political correctness. This is definitely not good to the formulation of US policy on China and the effective management of relations between Beijing and Washington.

US conservatives' attempts to tarnish China's image doomed to fail

Russia, China need strategic reassurance

China cannot guide Russia, nor does it need to. To China, Russia has many aspects to learn from, but Russia should also open its arms to its neighbor more widely.

Despite strains, US and China have to live together

Since the US has defined China as a strategic competitor and ratcheted up major power competition with China, bilateral relations are passing through the toughest of times.

Bush, Deng said China-US relations have to be improved. Are these words still relevant to today's bilateral ties? Why do we have to improve China-US relations? Global Times interviewed scholars on both sides.
